    Hey all,

    i’ve got an ad in my footer with this java code (its inserted as a widget):

    <!-- begin 300x250 Top The Fan Manifesto -->
    <div style="text-align:left;">
    <script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript">
    window.dctile = Number(window.dctile) + 1 || 1;
    window.dc_ord = Number(window.dc_ord) || Math.floor(Math.random() * 1E10);
    if (dctile==1) {var vdcopt = 'ist';} else {vdcopt = '';}
    if (17>dctile) document.write('<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ad.doubleclick.net/adj/yb.soapboxsportsbyte/;chan1=gensports;rating=pg;dcopt=' + vdcopt + ';yb=ad;s1=;s2=;tile=' + dctile + ';sz=300x250;ord=' + dc_ord + '?"></script>n');
    </script>
    </div>
    <!-- End ad tag -->

    If you go to my site: thefanmanifesto.com you can see that the white area behind the ad is being eclipsed. How do I either get rid of this white area or expand it to fit the width of the ad?

    Thanks for your help

    Ad this in your child theme style.css:

    #text-19 {background:none; border:none; box-shadow: none}

    This will remove white background

    Put code in between backtick (

    Code:
    `

    ) characters. It’s usually located above the Tab key on your keyboard. I have fixed this for you.

    Well, if you’re using non english keyboard it’s not there :). On my keyboard (croatian) it’s here: AltGr+7 (`), above tab I have this: ¸

    Right, understand that, but it took me quite some time to find it, and to understand what the heck are they (Ken & Josh) talking about, than I just google it 🙂

    I’m backtick expert now …

    This didn’t work for me. Is there somewhere specific in the stylesheet it needs to go? Or is there a way to edit the java code above to make it easier?

    Make sure it’s in a child theme stylesheet, or in Custom CSS feature. Add it at the end.

    No, CSS and JavaScript are different things.

    The above code does work:

    Got it! The problem was actually the backticks…for whatever reason, they stopped the code from working.

    One more question…how would I do the same thing to the ad on the sidebar (get rid of the white background..)

    Thanks for your help!

    Have you installed Firebug? It lets you isolate those CSS classes and id’s easily and you can make modifications on the fly.

    I have, but it’s gibberish to me. I’m quite illiterate when it comes to this stuff.
